Alex + Maggie | Engaged | A Lakeside Engagement Session at South Shore Park in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

October 27, 2015

I hope you’re ready to meet the most precious couple you will ever see on the blog today!! : ) I seriously cannot get enough of these two!! Having had the opportunity to experience them in person, I simply cannot help but smile as my heart feels so full : ) They are kind (to others + each other), sweet, really smart, + absolutely adorable!! I can hear Maggie’s laugh just looking through these images!! Two peas in a pod … simply a match made in Heaven!! 

It started something like this … Maggie moved to Milwaukee where Alex was living + the two had mutual friends. They met several times while hanging out in groups with these friends, but it was at a friend’s birthday party that Maggie really noticed Alex for the first time. He just always seemed to be … nearby : ) I’m going to guess it was his amazing smile that led her to give him her number (right!!?!), but nothing really came of that for awhile. Until, Alex planned a Game of Thrones Party at his house + invited a bunch of friends, including Maggie. When the evening of the party rolled around, everyone ended up not being able to come … except Maggie : ) Instead of having a party with just the two of them, Alex took Maggie out to dinner + the rest. is. HISTORY!!! They dated long distance for quite some time as Alex is just finishing up med school/residency in Milwaukee + Maggie was getting her Masters in LaCrosse (opposite sides of the state) for anesthetic nursing!! 

It was in June of this past year that Alex proposed to Maggie while vacationing in Mackinaw Island : ) They went for a bike ride on a beautiful summer day on the island … and it only took six miles of biking for Alex to finally find a spot that was included enough for him to pop the question : ) hehe! Maggie was overjoyed + the two are now planning their wedding for next summer from their new home together in Milwaukee : ) It is going to be a BEAUTIFUL day, I have no doubt!! And I am so excited for it!!! : ) For now, however, enjoy some of our favorites from Alex + Maggie’s engagement session!! You two — we ADORE you!! xoxo!!

LOVE! Their joy is so beautiful!!!

The sweetest : )

SO pretty, Maggie!! It was windy + we worked it in our favor!!! LOVE!!

I think this set is my favorite : ) SO many good things going on!!!

What a good-looking couple : )!
